Our Gestalt Editor this month discerns a homebound, cabin fevered bunch.
2/28 Did we do right? I received my POH order yesterday. Thank you very much for your prompt shipment. Jan
2/26 Did we do right? Robert says: I received everything fast and good quality. Your non waxed floss is the best.
2/25 Did we do right? Larry says: I started using POH when you sold it in the Air Force Exchange. I still prefer the product. My last order was my second. I do appreciate the product. Thanks.
2/25 Lynda, Myrtle Beach SC - Unbelievable that there are NO stores that sell this wonderful product in S.C.
2/25 Did we do right? Ralph says: As has been the case for upwards of seven years, your online service continues to provide the needed products, in a timely manner, with minimal hassles, and at a reasonable cost. What's not to like?
2/25 Holly, Diamondhead MS - I found your floss at Whole Foods and I love it! I'm buying toothbrushes for my family now and showed my youngest daughter the YouTube video which she loved. Thank you.
2/25 Did we do right? NO! says Karen: Hi, I stopped using it because it shreds. Awful product. Thank you. [Typical complaint from people who have never learned to floss properly. Sent this link . http://www .buypoh. com/flossprob.html
2/25 Order up thank you! Thank you. I do not do any of the social media sites but have used nothing but POH for many years. It is the best. Doris
2/24 Did we do right? Francis says: The dental floss was ordered for my wife. She got information on the floss from the dental technician at the periodontist office. She is very satisfied with the floss and have been using it for several years.
2/24 Did we do right? Bruce says: Thanks, you make the world's best toothbrushes. I'll definitely be ordering again.
2/24 Did we do right? Bob says: Hi Guys: I did put something in a survey your sent after I sent in my order. To summarize what I said: "I've been a POH Classic Floss customer/user for easily 25 years. I used to be able to buy it at the big box drug store but one-by-one the national chain drug stores dropped your product. I found it at a locally owned neighborhood drug store until 10 years ago when they retired and closed down. That's when I discovered I could buy it on-line directly from you. I've been doing that ever since. My teeth are closely spaced together and your classic floss gets between them perfectly. No other floss I have tried does as good a job. Thanks for offering the "refill" approach to buying your floss. I always thought your canisters were durable enough to do a refill. And now I will save money and keep the canisters out of our landfill. Oh by the way, I also ordered one of those gold plated top canisters just for the fun of it." Thanks for checking in. Please feel free to use any or all of this email as a testimonial if you like. Sincerely, Bob
2/24 Did we do right? James says: Flossing now for more than 50 years (Mostly POH), I did notice a small difference between POH floss and the drugstore generics: your weight or strength of strand is about one or two individual strands less than most of the others and can tear more often? Should one increase the strength ever so slightly? Would this make it difficult to store 100 yds in the small cylindrical containers? Is it worth even giving any consideration to this problem? Imponderables. Jim
2/24 Melissa, Brodhead KY - This is the only floss that I ever use. I have a hard time finding it at any store.
2/24 Did we do right? Yes, my order arrived on time and everything was just as I requested! I have been using POH floss for 20+ years, but have had difficulty finding it in Northwest stores for the last 10 years or so. I really did not want to change (couldn't find a floss I liked as well), so when I saw the website on the floss-can, I decided to look to see if you had an on-line store. Happy Camper here!!! You do sell on-line, and I have been buying my floss supplies over the web ever since. Thank you, Donna :)
2/24 Did we do right? Oh my! I am happy to tell you how wonderful your products are. I began flossing about 1982 when I was 30 years old after a bought of gingivitis that scared me. I had always had great teeth because of natural fluoride in the water when I was young, growing up in a military family in the West( NM, TX, OK). But that is no protection for gum disease, and I had never flossed because the standard J+J floss was too thick and hurt my gums when it snapped through my tight tooth contacts. After discovering the ultra thin unwaxed POH floss from Mrs Hazel Ligon of Sandy Spring, Maryland, I have flossed every night. It used to be that POH floss was sold in drugstores, so I did not have trouble finding it. I believe I first ordered floss by mail about five years ago, and probably ordered 10 rolls, which recently ran out.
To my pleasure and surprise, when I received my new order, a soft toothbrush was enclosed. Let me tell you my toothbrush problems. When a product you love is stopped being made, it is a sad day. Like many people I have toothbrush abrasion along my upper premolar area and had used soft toothbrushes made by ---, ---------, and -------, until they were no longer available. Your soft brush is fabulous and I ordered 36 of them and will be taking one to my next dentist appointment to show him what he should be handing out, instead of those grout cleaners he gives me now. That could be your slogan- "Won't clean grout."
Thanks again for your great products and if you go out of business please give me ample notice so I can stock up for the rest of my life. Best regards, Courtenay
2/24 Did we do right? Jerry says: I Love the POH products I ordered, especially the toothbrushes. I appreciate the company's efforts in producing a toothbrush with emphasis on the brush, instead of investing tons in creating a fancy handle for the toothbrush. The #4 brushes are comfortable on my gums and leave my teeth feeling "super" clean. Thank you POH!
2/24 Did we do right? Jamie & friends say: We love POH!!
2/24 Did we do right? Gregory says: You did great. I mistakenly gave you a wrong address and you guys made it right. I got the product delivered as expected. Great job.
2/24 Did we do right? Bridgman says: You did right and have been doing it for over 25 years. Keep up the good work!
2/24 Did we do right? Steve says: I started using POH unwaxed floss more than 20 years ago when it was recommended by my periodontist. I have used it continuously since that time and would not use anything else. It is the best!
2/23 Ronald, Anchorage AK - Best floss I have ever used. Can't find POH in local stores.
2/23 Kathryn, New Hartford NY - Been using POH since 1971!!
2/23 Barbara, Ocean Springs MS - I have burning mouth syndrome, have tried everything. found POH on line, I want to try it.
2/22 Noah, Farmington NM - First chapter. Became aware of your product at Integrity Dental, Dr. James C., Farmington, NM [Clever guy, Noah. Did you see what he did? “First chapter”? As in: the first chapter of “Please tell us your POH story!”]
2/22 Christy, Portland OR - Have loved your floss for my tightly-spaced teeth for decades, but find it difficult to find in the stores. Thanks for selling POH online!
2/22 Did we do right? Anne says: It has been a while since I received my order. Your product is always at hand. Over 40 years ago, I went to a dentist in Scottsdale who sent me to a periodontist. It was recommended that I have some pretty drastic work done. I asked If I could try to improve first. The dentist reluctantly agreed to let me try. Long story short, I cleared the problem, due in no small part to your help. Today, all these years and three states later, at age 84, I still have all my own teeth, including some crowns, and still get rave reviews at my dentist's office..I asked my hygienist to contact you for samples. I never see POH in local stores so it is easier to order on line. I do thank you, I am impressed. I have my own teeth. What else can I say but..Thank You.
2/21 Evan, Bunkie LA - My mother was a dental hygienist and your products were the only ones she ever recommended.
2/21 Rebecca, Houston TX - We've been using this product over 40 years! Nothing is as good. Thanks for continuing to make POH.
2/19 Jocelyn, Bend OR - Dentist strongly recommended POH.
2/19 Did we do right? Gary says: Received the POH order and everything was fine. I'm trying the refills, which I saw on the site for the first time when I ordered. Refills make good sense because the original packaging is so durable. I always felt a little bad about throwing away those neat little canisters, but couldn't find any other use for them.
2/18 Did we do right? Dear POH: My POH story is an old one. WAY back in 1970 (!!) I was working for a dentist as a dental assistant. He insisted all his staff and patients use POH flosses. I was really pleased because my teeth are almost impossible to get floss between and also that way I would get my floss for free. Needless to say, even now, long after I have been done working for that dentist, my teeth are still annoyingly tight. I've used POH floss exclusively lo these many decades. From time to time I try others, but none have met your quality or thinness. Thank you. Yours truly, Judith B.
2/18 Colleen, Surprise AZ - It's my husband's favorite [Floss]; have to keep him supplied.
2/18 Jane, Port Charlotte FL - My periodontist gave me my first POH brush. It's wonderful. I want a supply for the future.
2/18 Did we do right? KJ says: All was fine - fast shipping, I'm a fan of your products - no complaints!
2/17 Did we do right? Debbie says: Yes, thank you - I received my order despite my mistake in my shipping address. I'm trying the #7 toothbrush first, I like it.
2/16 Did we do right? No complaints or comments, and no feedback to give yet other than the following: I'm not the best at daily oral hygiene, which was apparently fine for the first 35 years of my life, but recently my lazy attitude toward my teeth and gums has proven deleterious. I've been updating my non-existent oral hygiene "routine" and your products are helping me engage in taking better care of my teeth and gums. This is not something you want to put on your website; I'm the poster child for the arrogant presumption that the health of my teeth is eternal and unchanging. I don't smoke anymore, but I don't eat very well, I don't drink very much water, and I love sugar. For example, I've been known to eat various forms of chocolate in the middle of the night and not bother brushing my teeth. Needless to say, my terrible habits have been wreaking silent havoc on my gums and now I'm battling blood in the sink and early periodontal disease. Hooray. My guts tell me that the situation in my mouth is but one symptom of a larger, more systemic health issue, so I'm working up the motivation to engage in better eating and exercise habits. I feel as thought 35 years old is some sort of tipping point for me. If I manage to revamp the bad habits I developed in the languor of my youth to suit an adult that wants to keep her beloved-but-taken-for-granted teeth, I'll be in good shape. Because it's about more than my teeth. (insert sigh of resignation) Thanks, Sarah
2/16 Did we do right? DL says: I am a retired hygienist. Love P.O.H. as does my husband. We decided to buy the refills the last two times and are very happy.
2/16 Did we do right? SC says: Hi, Everything is great. I use your products daily and intend to continue doing so. Thanks for your efficient and friendly service,
2/16 Did we do right? says: My dentist gave me a spindle of POH floss a while back and it was a bit like black gold. My best friend is mildly (okay, very) teeth obsessed so I knew that this would be a great birthday surprise. I was right :) great floss and made right here in USA. A little expensive, but everything good is worth the cost. Thank you!
2/16 Did we do right?: Hi, Yes, I will be ordering again in the near future. I love POH dental floss (white). I have very closely spaced teeth and it is just about the only dental floss I can use. Regards, Sally
2/16 Susan, Bethlehem PA - Heard about POH products from friend who is a dental hygienist.
2/16 Did we do right? L Chan says: Everything's great! We love these toothbrushes (first given to us by our dentist, Dr. Jack D. in Longmont, Colorado).
2/16 Did we do right?: Perfect order! Thank for your marvelous POH toothbrushes! Sincerely, Donna
Did we do right? David says: LOVE you guys. My teeth and gums love you more. Floss refills are excellent idea. Now please invest in a better cutter for the floss. The cut/stamping performs poorly despite my tweaks. Since we'll be keeping the dispenser, might as well make a good one.
2/16 Did we do right? Les says NO! - "Did we do right by you?" Well, I got what I ordered if that's what you mean but upon closer inspection "Everything is [NOT] okay". I cannot play the violin and do not expect that I ever will. And with painful arthritic hands I also cannot grasp or manipulate your tooth brush for the simple reason that the handle is too short! Twenty plus years ago I used to do a fair share of backpacking and in those days I purposely cut my tooth brush handles short in order to save weight. But I no longer backpack and therefore do not need a short handled tooth brush. So rather than reorder from you I'll just buy 'straight' long handled tooth brushes at my local pharmacy that will fit my old style toothbrush holders, in my house and my motor home. And then I can be assured of ample griping surface to hold onto. [Griping is important...]
2/16 Did we do right? Kevin says: This is the only floss that really works for me.
2/16 Did we do right? Louis says: The order was fine, the quality of the brushes exceptional. However I do not belong to twitter or facebook or any other such internet program and have no intention of joining so that I can give feedback on these media. At 76 I am more than content to stay with email. If I had a complaint I would let you know. You know they say silence is golden so my silence is praise.
2/16 Did we do right? Hi, thanks for asking. I got the toothbrushes; although I ordered specific colors and they just sent a rainbow assortment of colors. I also ordered some empty spools for floss refills. They sent several spools without charge, which was appreciated--thank you. However, they were just loose in the little shipping box, with no wrappers or anything, and when I opened the box, some of them fell out and rolled around on the floor, so I didn't want to use them after that because the floor isn't pristine clean. If they had been in a plastic bag or a little wrapper of some kind, it would have been all right. I do think the toothbrushes are great! I use the children's brushes, because they fit my teeth better. However, the handles are so short for me as an adult, that the toothpaste always runs all over my hand while I'm brushing. I wish they would make adult sized handles with kids sized bristles! Actually, I would like to order some more floss (the 3pack) and a couple of the kids extra soft (.5). Do I have to go to the website to do that? Thank you, Deborah
2/16 Did we do right? Chris says: Here's my story...I "flip" guitars and sometimes I make wiring harnesses for the volume and tone controls. To tie these wires together zip ties are too big and ugly. I have found that waxed dental floss is the perfect solution except it's white. Found you product in black and that's awesome. I don't use much at a time so I most likely won't reorder but the dispenser looks interesting...
2/16 Did we do right? Gadis says: Everything OK! I just like the POH floss, and want to make sure I have a good supply.
2/16 Did we do right? says: Order was filled accurately and delivered promptly. Still trying to decide which of the POH flosses is my favorite. Also taking my time to decide whether or not I like your brushes . . . and if so, which one. I understand the theory, but it will take me a while to decide whether I think it works well for me. Have to see long term how clean my teeth are, whether or not my gums hurt, and how my carpal-tunnel-syndrome wrist feels.
2/16 Did we do right? Wanda says: You did everything perfectly. Service was very fast, and the bundle price on the toothbrushes was excellent. My husband and I love your toothbrushes. They are our favorite. I also purchased two different types floss to try and admit to being underwhelmed by it. Nothing is wrong with it, I just see nothing exceptional about it. [POH says “OUCH”]
2/16 David, Irving TX - My Dentist, Dr. Alicia D., Irving, Tx., put me on to the POH toothbrushes, and I have been using ever since, and very pleased with your product.
2/15 Lois, Arden Hills MN - I've used POH floss since 1979-- I'd go to the ends of the earth to find it! Thanks!!
2/14 Qi, Lewis Center OH - This will be the first time we have tried your product.
2/14 Lynda, Alexandria VA - My dentist Jim H. in Chattanooga got me hooked on this. I used to get it free when I got my teeth cleaned. We moved and now I have to buy it. I will give a roll to my new dentist in VA
2/14 James, Franklin IN - My husband used first as his teeth are not very good. I started using and it's the best floss we've ever used. POH has been part of our family for over 20 years.
2/11 Misako, Long Beach CA - My holistic dentist and staff introduced me to your POH #5 toothbrushes and Classic dental floss. Hands down, they're THE ABSOLUTE BEST! I'm very grateful for such excellent-quality, reasonably priced oral hygiene products (and by a U.S. company). Thank you!!
2/11 Dennis, The Villages FL - Started using sometime in the early ‘60s. Referred by an Air Force dentist.
2/10 Barbara, North Billerica MA - My husband and I have been using POH unwaxed dental floss for approximately 27 years. Your floss is the only one we will use.
2/7 Gay, Orlando FL - My mother gave me some of your POH dental floss a few years, ago. It's the best I ever tried. Then I bought some of your excellent and low-priced toothbrushes. Wow!
2/5 Marilyn, New York NY - My whole family has been using POH floss since a professor at the University of North Carolina Dental School introduced me to it.
2/5 Francis, Little River SC - Been using this product for 20 years or so. Can't find it around my area of Myrtle Beach, SC. It is the very best dental floss.
2/5 Brent, Bellaire TX - POH is the only dental floss that will fit between my teeth.
2/3 Judith, Houston TX - I have been using this no wax dental floss for about 15 years.I LOVE it. My dentist gave me the first sample, I reordered when I ran out. My teeth are very close together and other floss is very hard to get in between my teeth. POH works great! I am a FAITHFUL flosser and a BIG FAN of your product. My last order was enough to last me 12 years! Just happy to find POH is still available!!
2/3 Gloria, San Diego CA - My Dentist provided a POH sample, which I liked using.
2/2 Darcel Portland OR - Got a POH #1 toothbrush from my dentists, I really like it.
2/2 Richard, Haverhill MA - Very good products! Recommended by my current Dentist.
2/1 Rachel D., RDH - I work in public oral health promotion an was happy to find the disclosing tabs.
2/1 Anthony, Wakefield MA - Like to use a plain straight handle full head soft toothbrush and cannot find them in retail stores anymore.
